Hello! Justice League here. Ask us anything!

Does Superman ever make mistakes? Does Wonder Woman have to listen to her parents? Does Aquaman smell like fish? The greatest heroes in the DC Comics Universe, the Justice League, answer mail from their biggest fans—kids!

Their honest and humorous answers will surprise and delight readers of any age, as it turns out that being a superhero is not too different from being a kid.

Full of feats, follies, and colorful illustrations by Gustavo Duarte, Dear Justice League gives readers the inside scoop into everyday heroics, no matter who wears the cape!

“A clever idea, smartly executed.” –NPR

"The heroes we love are more lovable than ever in this clever, laugh-out-loud funny and action-packed adventure. Dear Justice League definitely does the JLA justice!” —Jerry Craft, author of New Kid

"Dear Justice League really surprised me. That was a level of clever I haven't seen in comics in a long time." --Tom Angleberger, author of the Origami Yoda series

"Northrop’s freewheeling tenor captures the fun in each situation but allows them to humanize the heroes as well, poking humorous holes in the likes of Batman’s foreboding manner and Aquaman’s swaggering braggadocio. Duarte matches this sensibility with heroically gleaming figures whose characteristics are amusingly exaggerated just enough to pull them a little closer to earth." —Booklist

“This new book, written by Michael Northrop with illustrations by Gustavo Duarte, looks and reads fantastically. I cannot wait to get this for my daughter.” –Nerd-O-Rama

“Dear Abby” meets the DC universe. Young superhero fans and reluctant readers will devour this sweet and funny graphic novel." –School Library Journal
